Everyone has that frayed saree they’ve inherited from their grandmother that they can never wear ever, but simply cannot sell either. After conducting significant R&D into fabrics and understanding how they can be bonded with industrial fabrics to be used as upholstery, we at Sihasn can now take your treasured saree out of the cobwebbed corners of your closet and give you a chance to display and celebrate them as upholstery draped resplendently across your furniture.
The upholstery team measured the saree to ensure there was sufficient material to both upholster the chair as well as drape the pallu.
A lot of drawing and cutting followed to create a silhouette of the Nizam with the client’s saree.
The machine-stitching took place, which essentially made the saree like a fitting piece of attire itself.
Once the entire piece was perfectly and proportionately stitched, the upholstery team used a staple gun to keep the fabric in place, like they do with regular upholstery.
The pallu was pleated and ironed to make it ready for the Nizam and complete the upholstery process.
The pallu was draped to resemble a person or mannequin wearing a saree — a fine, fun, and fidgety appendage to play with!
I am so thrilled with this piece and I plan to gift it to my brother! I can never think of what to gift him, but this is something comfy and with sentimental value. He is certain to love it!
